Ways to donate to the Ri

By giving to the Ri, you can help us achieve our vision of a world where science is for everyone.

"An understanding and appreciation of science is more important than it ever was... This institution has a marvellous record of bringing the understanding of science to children and today it can do it with technical devices and ingenuity which gives it a bigger reach than ever before. So the Ri couldn’t be more important."
